I'm looking for the song often heard in the backgrounds of cartoons where things were automated..For example in the cartoon where the baby is diapered by a conveyor belt machine..It's a very mechanized sounding song done by an orchestra..there was a specific jazz tune I don't know the name of and have no clue where to begin looking..

The music was composed by Raymond Scott in the 1930s for his band. The composition is called POWERHOUSE, and the part you are talking about is the "B" section. Warner Bros ended up with the rights, and Carl Stalling arranged the music for animation, starting in the 1940s. The piece appeared in many golden age cartoons. Warner Bros itself produced this demonstration of its use:
